Dorset Libraries now offers over 1,500 e-comic titles available via the RB Digital App including Marvel, Disney and Star Wars titles.
You can check out collected volumes of titles (like we have physically in libraries) rather than single issues.
There is no limit on the number of e-comics you can check out, or a time limit on accessing them.
How to access e-comics
You must be a member of Dorset Libraries as you will need your library card number to create an RBdigital account.
For mobile devices including tablets, smartphones and Kindle Fires
- install the RB app (available from all app stores)
- use your Dorset Libraries borrower number to register and create an account
- search for and download e-comics
- eMagazines, audiobooks and e-books are also available via the RB app
For laptops, PCs, Macs, Nook and Kobo eReaders
For laptops, PCs, Macs and some smart devices, such as Nook and Kobo, you will need to install Adobe Digital Editions before you can register with RB Digital.
- obtain an Adobe ID and authorise Adobe Digital Editions
- go to the RB Digital website
- register on the website using your Dorset library card number and create your username and password
- search for and download e-comics to Adobe Digital Editions
Kindle eReaders (for example, Kindle Paperwhite) are incompatible with our library e-comics. Many eReaders must be used with a PC, Mac or laptop to enable e-comics to be downloaded.
Information for parents
Please be aware that some of our e-comics may contain storylines and images that include violence, offensive language and sexual content. We do not censor any material or restrict access by age to the e-comics in this collection.
Customers are encouraged to use the filter tools around audience and rating to find appropriate content. Parents and carers should satisfy themselves that the titles are suitable for their child.
Information about helping children and young people stay safe online is available from Get Safe Online, a government-backed organisation providing free expert advice.
